According to recent research, in the UK 1 in 5 of us live below the poverty line (ie. can’t afford the basic necessities of life) – and according to the Child Poverty Action group two-thirds of the children living in poverty belong to a family where at least one member works.

To bring things home a little, statistics unveiled by the End Child Poverty Coalition showed that in 2015, 25.8% of children in Wrexham were in poverty.

It’s no wonder that the local Foodbank provided 4318 emergency food packages to families in crisis last year.

They are only given out to families with written authorisations from an official agency such as a school, Job Centre or recognised charity to collect them, and almost every item in them was donated by members of the public like you.

Please help us to help them to give some of these families food for Christmas time and over the coldest months of the year.

Opening the festival will be GENGAHR! After the release of their first single ‘Fill My Gums with Blood’, GENGAHR were immediately invited to play at Glastonbury Festival 2014. The band’s debut album received great critical acclaim in 2015 ‘A Dream Outside an oddly soothing blend of dark romance and gentle psychedelia’ NME and their hotly tipped new album is set for release in 2018. After extensive festival appearances and touring, including a tour with The Maccabees, Gengahr will headline Central Station on Thursday 10th May.

BILL RYDER-JONES – co-founder of The Coral, will be headlining the second night of the festival on Friday 11th May.
